Storage Is Puzzling

My students need a 16-tray mobile organizer to store floor puzzles and other early development materials.

My Students

My inner-city kindergarten students are eager to learn and share. For many of these students, this is their first official school experience. With this in mind, I want these students to continue to want to learn and come to school.

I want my students to still be eager and willing to learn after kindergarten and actually for their entire lifetime.

They come to school excited and curious from all different types of backgrounds and starting points. Given support and opportunities, they are all capable of getting a strong educational foundation that will benefit them their entire lives.

My Project

Young children need many developmentally appropriate activities early in their education to help them develop properly. These activities all need a place to be stored. Activities such as building giant floor puzzles help develop problem solving, fine motor skills, and develop team building. I have been fortunate enough to gather a nice collection of floor puzzles that the children enjoy building tremendously. Definitely one of their favorites!

Our puzzles need a home!

The puzzles last way longer than the boxes. The students need bins for their puzzles that are easily accessible and give each puzzle its own home. The cart we are asking for would be perfect. It would house all our puzzles. Students would easily be able to take a bin and build a puzzle and clean up with no problem. No one likes to build a puzzle only to be missing a piece. This cart will keep us organized!
